Crows are known to bring bad luck, but the superstition has a surprising origin. In Greek mythology, a crow served as the herald of death and was associated with rituals for cleansing from sin after death. In Northern cultures, crows were thought to be animals that could see into the future or souls of people who had been lost at sea. 

There are many superstitions about crows. For example, it is said that if a crow crosses your path, you will have bad luck for the rest of the day. If one lands on your shoulder, it means someone close to you will die soon. Some people believe they bring death and misfortune in general.
